This time of year is kind of a transition for me. Fishing is done for the year and yard work is winding down. As soon as the snow hits it will be full time woodworking. ( I’m retired) Yesterday I was doing leaves, cleaning gutters, etc. Today was cold, gray, drizzling. To cold and wet for yard work. Down to my woodshop I go.
I’m in the middle of a ” utility” table build for my wife to go in our laundry area. I’m making it out of soft maple. These pics are a ” snapshot” of everything going on this morning. ( FYI, I usually try to keep my basement shop a bit cleaner.)

So, looking from my table saw towards the back of my shop.
The table saw is ready to cross cut boards to length for a drawer for the table.
The cart to the right has the boards on it.
Just behind to the left is a cart with my shop vac/ dust deputy on it, hooked to the router table. Then the router table. In back of that and to the right is a cart with the dovetail jig to dovetail the drawer sides. ( It’s used on the router table). From there back is the main bench with the table carcess on it ,waiting for the next coat of finish. Behind that on the left is the table top, all done, just waiting for everything else to catchup. And on the right a piece of 1/2 plywood to cut the drawer bottom out of.

The shop is warm all winter because of the pellet stove. All in all, I can’t complain. I hope you don’t mind me sharing my little part of the world with you. Thanks for looking.

Nice cozy shop. I wish I had your pellet stove right about now!

Ha… you’ve been over to see my shop and you think yours isn’t clean ?!?

12 degrees here last night. Will be the same tonight. It might warm up a bit in a couple of days though.

BTW… crankbait is almost done…. Mostly satisfied with it. I’ll send a link when finished.

Can’t wait to see the new lures, bet they’ll be killer on the bass. Let me know when you might be down this way, I’ll put the coffee on.

I think I’ll cast it along the shore a few times to see how it runs. Then put it under glass as my ‘first’. Don’t want to lose it. This one was ambitious, a perch. Probably should have thought simpler. Next one will be an American Shad as that’s what the bass seem to cough up the most when I catch them. I’ll fish with that one come spring.

I think I’ll shut up now. This is turning into a fishing forum. We’ve already got one of those.
